Red Sox Podcast
The most comprehensive Red Sox discussion, from the minor leagues up to Fenway, on the web.

With minor league game action resuming, Chris and Ian took a trip to Worcester. The stadium is a work in progress, but the early reviews say it’s going to be a great park. In addition to scouting report from the game, the guys talk about the latest news from the Red Sox system, including the injuries to a couple of the club’s top pitching prospects. A few hitters are raking to start the season. We re-ranked players at the start of the month and they talk through the biggest movers. Then the guys go level by level highlighting players who are showing something. And as always, we read through the mailbag to close the show.

As a reminder, with minor league games returning, so do our game reports for our patrons. Visit our Patreon for details. Thanks for writing in and make sure to send your questions to
